Hedwig's leading men
Tony-award winning Hedwig and the Angry Inch closes on Broadway on September 13, 2015. Over its 76 weeks on Broadway, it has grossed over $49 million with 450,000 visits.
During its run, Hedwig was played by 6 different actors — Neil Patrick Harris (who won the 2014 Tony for Best Actor in a Musical), Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, John Cameron Mitchell (who wrote the book of the musical), Darren Criss and Taye Diggs.
Each actor following Harris brought his own fans, but none matched Harris's ability to fill a theater. Harris kept percent capacity at or over 100 percent nearly every week, but once he left, audiences began to drop off.
